Embracing change

As we shift into a new year, take the time to reflect on the changes in your life. How do you view and adapt to these changes? Understanding ourselves will help us to understand others, including the children and families we support as they navigate the changes in their lives.

Families First

Welcoming families into early learning spaces helps honour and support the foundations families are building for their children.

I can too... empowering children's voices

The wonder and joy of outdoor play

Playing and learning outdoors creates a sense of place, a sense of connection to the land and to others. It supports children in every aspect of development. We encourage and invite you to find as many ways as possible to spend your days with the children in your care playing and learning outdoors.
